I'm trying to figure out why I get so irritated by the noise around me these days?
I have a co-worker who is constantly chewing on ice and I can't stand the sound of it. She then starts eating chips or whatever and she rattles the paper and the whole time I'm thinking, "Will you please hurry up and get done so you can stop all the paper rattling."
As I sit and listen to this on a daily basis I feel like I'm going to explode at any minute. Sometimes I have to get up and leave the room before I say something I'll regret later.
Also, I can't deal with the conversations going on around me. It's usually 2 or 3 people talking, but, it seems like it's a million people and I just want quiet.
How do I stop getting so irritated by all this crap?
